Jersey City City Guide

For most of its history Jersey City has personified the gritty New Jersey waterfront. This is, after all, where most of the Sopranos was filmed. But in recent years the Garden State’s second largest city has been undergoing a transformation. The attractive home values for New York City commuters have made Jersey City the fastest growing city in the state. There are still more housing units on drawing boards here than anywhere in New Jersey. Not all the newcomers are commuters though – Jersey City now boasts one of America’s largest business districts.

Architecture and landmarks

The Statue of Liberty National Monument, Ellis Island and Liberty Island are all in Jersey City. The Richardsonian Romanesque-styled Central Railroad of New Jersey Terminal from 1889 still stands in Liberty State Park. Pockets of heritage buildings remain downtown even as they are increasingly surrounded by new construction filling the Jersey City skyline. That skyline was once punctuated by the 50-foot Colgate Clock atop the Colgate Palmolive Building – while the building has since been demolished, the signature clock still stands on the waterfront.

Journal Square with its crown jewel, the Loew’s Jersey Theatre, is hallowed real estate in Jersey City. The Barrow Mansion is a prized Greek Revival treasure fronted by full-height fluted Ionic columns. Sometimes commuting can be as simple as walking – the historic route to the adjoining city of Hoboken is via the century-old 100 Stairs, which have just been renovated at a cost of about $10,000 per step.
